LEXINGTON, Va. — The College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) released its Google Cloud Academic All-America All-District At-Large women’s teams on Thursday, and Washington and Lee had three athletes honored.
Senior golfer Mary-Frances Hall (State Road, N.C./Elkin), junior lacrosse player Cordelia Peters (Larkspur, Calif./Hotchkiss) and sophomore swimmer Emily Hageboeck (Charleston, W.Va./George Washington) were among the 10 women recognized on the District 5 squad. This marks the first academic all-district honor for all three Generals.
A neuroscience major, Hall has played 71 career rounds and claims a 78.59 career scoring average. She has three career tournament victories, and finished the 2018 season ranked 25th in Division III. She earned First Team All-ODAC accolades three times in her career, and was named the conference’s Player of the Year and Rookie of the Year in 2015.
Hall earned WGCA Second Team All-America honors in 2015, and also won the 2016 ODAC Championship. A 2016 and 2017 WGCA All-America Scholar, she garnered All-East region accolades in 2015 and 2018.
Peters, a business administration major, appeared in all 21 games with 16 starts for the women’s lacrosse team that finished 16-5 overall and claimed its ninth straight ODAC title this year. She led the team in goals (48), points (73) and assists (25).
Peters’ 73 points this season rank fourth in a single-season in program history, while her 48 goals are seventh in W&L single-season goals. Peters is a two-time all-conference honoree, and this season was named Second Team All-Chesapeake Region by the IWLCA.
An accounting and business administration and computer science double major, Hageboeck has earned six All-America honors in her two seasons, including three individual laurels. She was named the ODAC Women’s Swimmer of the Year and the ODAC Women’s Swimming Scholar-Athlete of the Year in 2018.
Hageboeck holds three individual W&L records, and is a member of two W&L record-holding relays. She also garnered CSCAA Scholar All-America recognition in 2017.
The criteria for the CoSIDA Google Cloud All-District program states that a player must be of sophomore academic standing, be a starter or important reserve and claim a GPA of at least 3.30 on a 4.0 scale. Washington and Lee is a member of District 5, which includes players from small colleges in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, Puerto Rico, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia.
With their First Team All-District selections, all three athletes will now go on the national ballot to be considered for CoSIDA Academic All-America honors.
